It might seem that way, but the rules are the rules. The game is the game. Youre comparing oranges to tangerines.
Okay look at it not as a game. Look at it as a punter, not an FT member. They advertise all over the place their BRG. As a punter I would believe the third party is offering a cheaper rate for more product so really IHG should match/beat it! All this ends up doing is putting a sour taste in people's mouths and turning them off IHG.

I know their BRG is generous but it is just silly that a cheaper 'package' does not beat a 'package' that is more expensive on IHGs website.
